    This isn't what I asked, I asked why if in the PP opinion a midwife was not qualified to perform newborn health checks the government lets them perform them?

    If a midwife found something she would (should) refer that child onto a specialist, no?

    Probably because the cant fund a dr at every homebirth. I should re phrase, I'm sure they are competent just not as competent at someone who specializes in children's health. But hey I am pro- choice do whatever floats your boat but doesn't mean I have to agree with it. Ok thats it's I'm done arguing! Enjoy your day

    I think her term "birthzilla" is hilarious!
    I'm proud to be what she would consider a " birthzilla".
    I am proud that I armed myself with knowledge and insight in what was to me the most empowering amazing experience I will ever know.
    I think her suggestion that " birthzillas" put their plan before the health of themselves or their baby is extremely insulting. No woman would do that, I don't care what anyone says.
    I'm sorry but this whole idea of " who cares how the baby comes out" is so wrong in my opinion.
    I care, I love to hear others birth experiences whether they are bad or great because it helps me understand how different things can be. I want to hear about choices women have made whether it be about their placenta or their homebirth or their c/s.
    It opens my mind to the world and what's wrong with that? Nothing!

    True but when my child is sick I don't go to a pead I go to a general practitioner who specializes in general practise much like a midwife who specializes in normal maternal and newborn health, both are qualified to recognize when things are out of their scope of care aren't they?

    lost half my post.
    During my vbac I also had to wait for a birthing suite and was stuck in emergency, no monitoring, no canulas, I had nothing they kept harping on about that was so detrimental to a vbac, apparently being short staff meant I was now safe? It's a joke. All the theatres were full, had I had a rupture what would have happened? I made it into the birthing suite when I started to push.

    I've had 2 babies and never had a paed look over them? Even when my ds had a high fever and was in the nursery for a while. midwives look over the babies, peads aren't present at all births, thats ridiculous.

    And people need to stop calling me a birthzilla cause its shi!tting me up the wall and I'll start with my own names.....

    *genuine question!*
    Of course they are investigated by the coroner.

    DS had a doctor/paed check him over when he was 3 days old. I don't see not having a paed at home as a reason against homebirth. Mothers can leave the house you know

    Can I just say - anyone who thinks natural labour instantly destroys their lady bits & they are happy to have avoided it (oh and their husband lol of course how could I forget) is a bit of a dumb-as$. It's sad that women see birth as a competition. I agree OP - healthy baby & mother is most important.
